At least my tier 8 meds can pen it head on in the open with that big lower plate. Can't say the same about the Defender. And too many idiots trying to angle the hull on it so they show the 130mm effective driver view side. It's strong hull down. Same if it sidescrapes unless it pulls to far back to show the drivers view port. But then again.. You could say that about most HT's. 

 

Can't say I fear it as much as the Defender. Nor have I been super impressed by the many I've seen. As there are at least 2-4 in each game I play with tier 8's. Seen a few dominate ofc hull down etc with support. But not like the first week of the Defender when you did see 6 people with tier 6 to 8 guns group up on one isolated Defender, and he killed all of them as no one did manage to pen the side even. At least the 50TP gets taken out fast when that happens.

I am not sure who is to blame here WG for selling it rather than the Defender

 

 

 

All the people believing it was the Defender 2 and sort of helping g along with their hype, and I got to admit I have to include myself there

 

 

 

Me for getting excited about it when I saw it

 

 

30 hours later still smarting from my humongous, atrocious disgusting mistake, I think I'm going to superglue my wallet shut,  and lock it in chains and drop in the deepest well. Maybe in time I will get to actually make this tank work, but I cannot see tha being anytime soon, as of right now it is fired, not fit for purpose, relegated to the dusty corner of my garage:amazed:

 

They should just have sold the damn Defender, they know it is what people want:angry:

I am not sure Defender will do anything for you...

 

Sorry but this sums up everything that's wrong with this game. you want the easy way so you buy/want OP premium vehicles. then you realise it isn't all that because you're bad player no matter what.

You just need to stay at t5 or 6 and learn the basics of the game. 

 

Learn to keep an eye on the minimap, think where you should be, learn the basic weakspots on tanks and learn to shoot them. Be aware of your surroundings. etc. etc. Playing too high tier wont teach you anything but frustration.

Nothing wrong with the polish tank

It can be a verry powerfull tank in the right hands.

 

But seen enough muppets yesterday with that tank doing 0 dmg and get wrecked by the enemy.

About the Defender dont want to see that tank on sale again because every muppet will buy one and still suck in it.

From what I've seen in battle, it doesn't overperform at all.

When the Defender arrived. We did see 15 topics a day about it. How many have you seen of the 50TP? Defender is broken. As even when not top tier, most guns won't reliably pen it. 50TP is not strong when not top tier. My tier 9 meds and HT's have dealt with it easily vs the Defender. 

 

It's not an underpowered tank like the German MB. It's not broken like the Defender. I would not even call it OP. It's just a strong premium in the right spot. That's about it. And unlike the Defender. Most bad players will still do bad in it as far as I've seen. As it's way less forgiving.

Can't be sure yet, because I still had not the chance to challenge one on a duel, but driver hatch and LFP doesn't look so strong. Plus the round shape of the upper hull may be a weackspot if it try to sidescrape.

Not saying it's good for the game (except maybe the cupola, there are not weackspot that can be exploited by lower tier) but at least is not brocken as the defender.

Why are people whining about 50TP "supposedly" being OP? It's armor is full of weakspots, gun is slightly less potato(but still meh), mobility is a tiny bit above average. Only clearly superior ergonomics it has is 10 degrees of gun depression(not in the front, but on the sides), and 380m view range.

They seem to be a lot easier to deal with than the defender.

I have killed a few already and i haven't seen them running up 8,9 or 10 kills with PtW noobs driving them.

 

BUT

 

They are still light years ahead of the IS-6, WZ-111 or the 112 and the are ridiculously hard for Tier 6 tanks to deal with.

50t is strong, but not idiotproof like the Defender,

so if you want to do well in this you must know what

you're doing.

So no, it's not Defender vol II.
